EFL clubs to have minute’s silence before matches as mark of respect after Westminster tragedy

5 years ago

The EFL have announced that clubs will have a minute’s silence as a mark of respect after the events of Wednesday afternoon at Westminster.

The official announcement says that the minute’s silence will happen before all EFL fixtures taking place this coming weekend.

However, I hope that this then extends to when Championship (and Premier League) clubs are back in action the following weekend, when Newcastle host Wigan.

The subject of minute’s silences and minute’s applauses have been the topic of some debate this season amongst Newcastle fans but this kind of national tragedy, is one where I think there should definitely be respect shown by all football clubs/fans, not just those who happen to be playing this coming weekend.

Official EFL Announcement:

As a mark of respect to those who have lost their lives or were injured in this week’s tragic attacks in London, EFL clubs will hold a minute’s silence.

The silence will take place before all Sky Bet EFL fixtures taking place this weekend, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March.

Football will unite to pay tribute to the victims of Wednesday’s attacks and the emergency services who acted bravely and decisively in the aftermath.’
